R-Type

The old classic, R-Type, has been available on BlackBerry 10 since August 2013, but came with a price tag. For today only the game is Amazon's 'free app of the day' so if you didn't fancy buying the game initially from BlackBerry World, you now have a nice free alternative.

I've given the Amazon download a quick test drive on my Z30 and it seems to run perfectly, although I'm not sure how this one will handle on the Q series. If you're rocking the Q10 or Q5 feel free to drop a note in the comments if R-Type is running ok for you?

R-Type originates from the 80's so if you're as old as me it's the perfect way to take a trip down memory lane. It's one of those timeless classics.
